Healthcare Costs Rising Out of Control
December 23, 2014
A helpful infographic from the National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF) sheds light on healthcare costs rising out of control, leading to America’s Medical Debt Crisis. The cause of the crisis is multifaceted, and healthcare costs are often passed on to the patient. Medical expenses and debt can impose significant burdens on American families. The NPAF reports that one in five families will struggle to pay medical debt each year.
The care for joint and muscle disorders comprises a significant portion of overall healthcare expenses. Over $30 billion dollars are spent annually in the U.S. outpatient rehabilitation market. Several studies have shown that most patients’ muscle and joint conditions would benefit from a stretching and strengthening program. This can get expensive quickly when patients participating in outpatient physical therapy sessions can expect to “co-pay” on average approximately $40 dollars per session.
SimpleTherapy offers a much less expensive alternative — a wide range of customizable online video programs designed to address muscle and joint pain. We want to address the issue of rising healthcare costs by offering a solution with no copays, just one low, manageable subscription fee.
